Review:Mad Hatter says:
Min not being able to stand their pity fits in so well with the Professor we knew and loved in the series, and I must applaud you for having her so spot on. :D Also, Gilbert is amazing.

But as he's not actually the sweetheart in this story, I shall resume my crush on Cad. These reviews are an escape from school, so I do hope you don't expect anything helpful in them. XD

'Not everybody gets their happy ending, or there would be no charm in fairytales. It fell to the lot of some to guard and protect, so that others could live.' I LOVED this line. Not only does it sum up Min from what I'm guessing will end up (my hopes are still here, but as he does die, and as she doesn't seem to have any children in the books.), but it's just a beautiful line in itself.

I am so glad Min and Cad are talking, even if it's only that. She grins foolishly! GO KISS HIM, GIRL. The smooth integration of the Basilisk is lovely - I didn't catch on until the spiders were mentioned (Lovegood!) but I had completely forgotten that happened around this time. Mentioning Myrtle, too (though that technically happened in Tom's fifth year, but canon can be tweaked...) was just... I bow down to your amazingness. How do you keep all of this straight? It's so intricate I'd forget everything and get confused.

And then the scene on the Quidditch Pitch! And Cad thinking she wouldn't get the wrong idea and then her... aw. And are the separate dorms going to come into play somehow? It does seem awfully fanony, but I'm sure you have a perfectly good plot twist to justify it. HE KISSED HER on the cheek BUT HE KISSED HER WHE. and she liked it.

The Brethren was... creepy. It makes sense that Riddle would become leader, despite the fact that he was only Sixth Year - we know he could get anything he wanted, by persuasion or force. Slytherin seems terribly dark... wards around beds,creepy underground thingies with magic and icky stuff (apparently I just became stupidly tired) and it's all so fittingly Slytherin.

I loved the whole 'daddy issues' thing Cad goes on about - so inappropriate, but so amusing.

The Blacks are awesome, too - the way Cad described Alphard as a rough draft of Orion is particularly striking.

All in all, I adored this chapter and I'm sorry my reviewing is so erratic. XD

Author's Response: Emma my darling, I am sorry for how late this response is. This is one of those reviews which almost make me cry/ensure I will never be able to leave fanfiction!


Writing = my escape from mounds of uni work really XD. All aboard the good ship procrastination!

All my stories are depressing. I think I may have to see a therapist rather than become one!

EDITING MY LOVE. I get awfully confused ( case in point: ALPHARD IS NOT ORION'S BROTHER BUT I FORGOT THIS) and the minor bumps get smoothed out that way.

Dorms.. I just wanted to show how exclusive the Brethren are. Hadn't thought past that!! Does work wonderfully with a secret plot twist though!

Cad = makes me laugh. So so bad but I did smirk at the idea of him bringing Freud into casual conversation.

THANKYOU so much for another lovely review my dear! I do appreciate it so very much!
